Let’s see what’s in my Fall 2021 Alltrue box!
Everything was shipped in a colorful box designed by Mexico-based artist Hola Lou.
A peek inside!
Normally the box would come with a full color, fold-out information sheet with a list of all of the available product options/choices for the box, along with additional details about each one. However, because my box was sent for review it was not included (or at least I’m assuming that was why?).
Henny+Lev Vegan Leather Everyday Tote ($130 value)
The first customization choice included the tote above, Small Hours Seal Tight Stackable Pantry Containers (Set of 5) ($50 value), Earth Harbor Seas the Day Luxury Skincare Bundle ($80 value), Tease Smart Heated Mug ($65 value), or LSTN Wanderlust Portable Speaker ($99.99 value). This versatile tote is made of a vegan-friendly (yay!) faux leather that’s both sustainable and biodegradable. It measures 15 inches high by 15 inches long and is roomy enough to hold a 13 inch laptop, among other essentials. It features two pockets — one on the outside and one inside — and has a removable strap so you can use it as both a crossbody and a classic tote. As part of this partnership with Alltrue, Henny+Lev will be donating totes to nurses and mothers at Intensive Care Units for newborns. 😀
Molly’s Suds Natural Wool Dryer Balls (Set of 3) ($14 value)
The second customization choice was between the dryer balls above, Grown Alchemist Hydra Repair Day Cream ($49 value), or Kitchen Innovations Silicone & Beechwood Measuring Spoon Set ($15 value). This trio of dryer balls were made with 100% mulesing-free New Zealand wool, sourced from sheep raised on registered family farms. Not only are they a more eco-friendly alternative to dryer sheets, but dryer balls also reduce drying time by about 25% — saving you money on electricity as well. Plus, unlike the single-use sheets, these can last for thousands of loads. When it’s time to replace them, they’re naturally biodegradable too!
Mintbiology Seaweed Collagen Gold Eye Masks ($34.99 value)
The third customization was a choice between the eye masks above or a Bemakai Manta Hair Towel Wrap. I was happy to hear that Alltrue worked with MINTBIOLOGY to reformulate these hydrogels by swapping seaweed collagen in to replace the original animal-derived collagen, making them vegan-friendly. Very cool! Additional key ingredients include pure nano-active 24K gold particles (helps heal damaged skin & increases cell activity), hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C to hydrate, brighten, tighten, protect, and soothe to reverse the signs of aging and fatigue around the eyes. The package includes 15 individually wrapped pairs — which are free of parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sulfates, alcohols, and other icky stuff.
Aloette Winkable Lift & Lengthen Vegan Mascara ($28 value)
The fourth customization choice was either the mascara above, Headbands of Hope Set of 2 Knotted Headbands ($35 value), or EACH Jewels Layering Necklace Set ($42 value). I haven’t worn mascara in a long time, but I’m happy to have a vegan-friendly one to use when I feel like gettin’ fancy. 😉 As with the eye masks, Alltrue worked with the company (Aloette) to tweak the ingredients in order to make them 100% vegan. Love that! The formula is also free of gluten, sodium lauryl sulfate, hydroquinone, and formaldehyde. Instead, it features a blend of nourishing Argan oil, rice, and orange peel waxes that work together to moisturize and strengthen each lash without any clumping.
Serene House Ion Fan Diffuser & Inspire Essential Oil ($30 value)
The final customization was a choice between the diffuser above, Botanica Speckled Ceramic Candle ($35 value), or Accompany Jute Welcome Mat ($38 value). Unlike most essential oil diffusers that require water for use, the Serene House Ion Fan Diffuser features special paper pads to hold the essential oil as a built-in fan disperses the fragrance throughout the air. (Each pad is good for 10-15 uses, depending on how much oil you use.) The device can be powered by either 3 AA batteries or the included USB cord. Also included was an “Uplifting” essential oil blend consisting of lemon, blood orange, orange, lime, geranium, and eucalyptus.
Huna Vegan Nourish Skin Nutrition Balm ($80 value)
ALL subscribers received the last item, a full-sized Huna Vegan Nourish Skin Nutrition Balm. This award-winning body balm is made with nourishing ingredients including calendula, organic mango butter, pomegranate, avocado, carrot, broccoli, and chia seed oil to soothe dry, damaged, dehydrated skin. Again, Alltrue worked with Huna to make this version fully vegan by swapping out the original beeswax ingredient for candelilla wax. Yay!!
Each box always includes a 5 x 7 inch print designed by a new artist each season. The abstract print above was created by this months’ box designer, Hola Lou.
The Fall 2021 Alltrue box included a nice collection of home goods, cosmetics, skincare, and accessories. As this box was received for review, I didn’t quite get the exact items I would have selected for myself, but it was fun to get an alternate assortment. My favorite items were the Molly’s Suds Dryer Balls, Aloette Vegan Mascara, Serene House Diffuser & Essential Oil Blend, and Huna Skin Nourishing Balm. The total retail value of everything in my box was just over $315! 😀 — Remember, for a limited time you can save $10 on your first box! (No coupon needed.)
